Lagos - Guinea officials have been appointed by the Nigeria
Football Federation to take charge of the international friendly between the
Super Eagles and the Walya Antelopes.
The game is scheduled for the National stadium in Abuja on Saturday.
In a letter addressed to the NFF and dated 1st January,
General Secretary of Guinea Football Federation, Ibrahima Barry noted that his body
received the request from Nigeria and has thus nominated three officials to

official who has been an international referee since 2004. The 1st Assistant Referee

Federation to appoint a Nigerian to serve as Fourth Official.

Super Eagles Team B a feel of what the furnace would be like at the 3rd African
Nations Championship in South Africa, where they compete against the host
nation, Mali and Mozambique in Group A.
